2015, August

The Joker LEGO Mark Zuck Lee was also my main manager around August, 2015. So, he was not only my English student in Vietnam. I met Adam Wills at WOLBI NY back in 2004. So, Adam told me to stop adding him to Facebook groups, I didn't, and he blocked me. I wrote about excuses in order to teach a life lesson online. Anna Barbie took what I wrote as an insult to her friends. I wasn't trying to attack people. Was only trying to help. I wasn't actually specific in what I was writing. I was teaching English to people at different places and at the 23/9 park. I lost my house key. I shared a video of Trump in the first debate. I watched a video about a South Park theory about being stuck in a time-loop or something.

Anna 05

2015-08-01 - Saturday - 01:12 AM - Blogspot - Facebook Post from Friday, the 31st of July, 2015 - Conversation between me, my student, Anna Barbie, and other people in a Facebook group. We were talking about Anna's friends who may have failed to make it to our English club. An excuses that may have been made was related to how it was raining. So, I probably wrote about that a few times on Facebook during the summer of 2015. Anna probably got mad. Maybe she thought I was attacking her friends as I talked about it. I was not trying to attack. I was trying to use the situation as an object lesson.

Fellowship Youth Group (FYG)

2015-08-01 - Saturday - 01:28 AM - Luc Dinh messaged me: "i can't call you, could we meet after 4pm?" I was teaching English Group since 2013. We had a club in District 11 and 1. In 2014, in District 3 and then at Mr. Ribs in District 4. In 2015, we reunited to restart that club again. 01:32 AM - Nam Dương messaged me: "I live at Thanh Hoa... Do you kown Thanh Hoa?"

David Lyonz: "temptation to make jokes about something else Bill Cosby does... almost unconquerable :D." 03:23 AM - Me: "allegations are not automatically realization; it is more a popular culture reference than it is a personal attack against somebody I never met. I do not know Bill Cosby. I cannot prove that he did or did not do what people say he did or did not do. However, i use his name as a quick reference in order to make a point that is not directed at him but rather at irony and at progress towards passion and towards doing what is best; I use Cosby's name as a sarcastic and/or irony slur or something like that: but I don't always say exactly what I mean: people who know me know that I do not always try to personally attack and destroy individuals in immoral, unproductive, impractical, selfish ways."

Visa Info August 2015

2015-08-07 - Friday - 11:47 AM - Blogspot - Expat Blog - VN Immigration - Doing Business - Mua Ban - I wrote on that Friday, the seventh of August of 2015, just five months before my visa was blocked: "I was born in the United States & moved to Vietnam in 2012, November 29th, with a 3 month tourist visa. I extended my visa every three months until August 2013. I did a visa run to & from Cambodia. I was in Cambodia for a day. I renewed or made a new visa for Vietnam & went back to extending it every three months like before for five or six times, until December 2014 when I extended it again but this time for about $210 USD, which is about 4.200.000 VND.
Around March 2015, I paid about the same amount, $210, to visit Cambodia again (Cambodia visa) & to return with a new 3 months single entry DL (tourist) VN visa.
In June 2015, I extended my visa for three more months for about $170.
In September 2015, I will try my best to maybe extend, renew, or return to Cambodia for a visit, and I will try my best to try to look for any visa sales.
I know visa costs are rising each year and it also may rise for those who stay in VN longer without exiting. I don't understand all of the rules but I try my best to stay as educated as I can. I read all the comments here.
Thanks for the information here, everybody.
Joey Arnold."

First Republican Primary Debate - Main Stage - August 6 2015 on Fox News - At 15:16 Minutes - Donald Trump, replied to Megyn Kelly: "Only Rosie O'Donnell." Kelly was saying that Trump was racist, sexist, terrible, against women. So, he struck back with that zinger. I eventually heard about that famous zinger, even while living in Vietnam. That's probably why I shared a video of that debate on Facebook.

However, that is not true. He misunderstands what is happening. This is the end of our so called friendship. He said I violated his truth but I think he is violating my trust and he is insulting my groups and stuff.

I brush my teeth but there are two holes or odd gaps on both sides of my upper teeth where the fillings were put in I think in some molars or some other teeth too. I should do some research on Google and try to figure out what is happening. A part of a tooth may come out today or some day. It is 2015, August 29th, Saturday, or a few minutes from Sunday now in my room in Ho Chi Minh City , Vietnam. I may go to a dentist someday if I need to but I want to exhause other options first."
